Johannesburg, South Africa – The inaugural African Music Concert (AMC2015) set to take place this weekend has been postponed to Saturday 21st November to allow for an even bigger African representative as announced this morning by one of the concert promoters, Lucille Gumbi.
Clamours from excited fans across Africa, especially on social media, backed by the desire of the sponsors to see a bigger representation of African Unity, the concert promoters along with the top artistes decided to add at least 6 more African countries to the line up, a decision that inadvertently led to the postponement of the concert till the 21st of November. This postponement will give room to amplify the already confirmed colossal line-up to include celebrated talents from various other African countries further promoting African Unity.
With what was set to be merely an evening concert, will now transform into a full day festival and include top artists from Ghana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Cameroon and Angola.
‘The concert line-up which included artists from South Africa, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique just didn’t feel complete. We as a collective felt we needed to be true to the core message of the concert. We decided to include more countries, thereby pushing back the Concert by one month, and AMPLIFY the AMC experience in the true spirit of African unity’ says the concert promoter, Lucille Gumbi.
The African Music Concert 2015 will still feature the original confirmed line as initially advertised. The full list of all new talent inclusions will be announced later this month.
Gates will now open at 12pm and ticket prices will remain the same.
Concert goers that have already purchased tickets for the show this weekend have the option to either return their tickets for a full refund or to exchange their tickets at a Computicket outlet for the new festival date next month.
The VAS Company together with all stakeholders and sponsors apologise for any inconvenience caused. We are however excited to welcome such a stellar lineup to South Africa next month.
See you at the #AMC2015.
